Wrong again ole boy, for that post to be contrary to mine, it would have to be discussing what is happening today, not statistics quoted from a year ago.
You know I don't put much stock in articles/blogs. I was simply pointing out that you can find an even amount of articles from either side. As for now or in the past goes, I bet you don't want to compare the past to what your leader has done in the present. Nice side-step there Barn.

Nobody said there were NO companies doing well under this administration. It's the average American that is suffering under this administration. So much, in fact, that personal wealth for average Americans is down 39% since 2007 despite claims that Obama has cut taxes some 44 times since he took office. I'll take the old taxes and 39% more money in my pocket any day.

I'm quite content with the way I am and the way mankind is in the eyes of our creator.(With the exception of some of the stupid things people do.) I feel no need, nor do I have the desire, to "evolve." What is wrong with you to think you (and mankind) need to do more "evolving?" How can the Constitution and the Bill of Rights "evolve" into something better than what it is and what it was meant to be and do for our fellow citizens?
All you have to do is look around you, our creator gave us the ability to think, to expand our knowledge, to make our lives better, therefor evolve.

Unless of course you have some special insight into the creators mind, not to mention the Founders thoughts given modern day challenges.

If so, Edgar Cayce wants to contact you at your earliest convenience.

Keep on trying to convince yourself. You say one thing and then say the meaning was something different from what you actually wrpte.

Your behavior in this post indicates you have a guilty conscience for lying.

No one really cares about how many blogs you can find or how many lies you can tell about them, from either side, nor did your response have a damn thing to do with the post you responded to.

You got your argument shot down with current statistics..

" It's been almost impossible to buy strictly American for many years."

Two reasons: 1)American labor laws. A company has two options, America that makes companies spend ridiculous amounts of money to be in compliance or, lets say China, that basically says "We don't care how you run your business, we just want your company in our country". It's no wonder companies go to China. 2)Highest corporate tax in the world. People will protect their money. Whichever country allows a business to keep more of it's profits will get the opportunity for that business to set up shop.

As for labor laws in China, to me, there are issues with what the Chinese workers have to go through to be employed. BUT, the reality is that those same individuals would be in the exact same boat, and maybe worse, even if our companies didn't have operations over there because of the Communistic Chinese government. You would have to get rid of Communism in China in order to allow those individuals to earn a decent living in decent working conditions. Because no less than 95% of American shoppers ONLY care about price, don't expect America to be the ones to ask the Chinese to change their ways.

Then why try to political hay against this administration while defending the reasons and practices of companies relocating jobs to China or any of the Third World?

BTW, China is fast becoming a state supported capitalist country.

Our number one trade partner in the world has some very strict labor laws favoring the worker.

More Active Unions: Canadian labor laws are based on the US model, but typically much more restrictive of managementís right to intervene in a certification drive.

More importantly,
Canadian unions are much more prevalent in the private sector, representing approximately 20% of all workers, and they continue to aggressively pursue certifications in the service sector.

They have managed to organize selected outlets of American retail giants such as Wal-Mart and Starbucks.

Geographically it would be much cheaper for any business to go to Canada rather than China. That means Canada could actually be more expensive to a business than China and still have American businesses choose them over China. So what are the numbers going to Canada vs. the numbers going to China? Go ahead and make my argument for me.
